Well after 5 years my korkers finally gave up. I fished on Independence day and had a ball. It was a bit rough fishing pocket water with the sole of your wading boot flopping and catching the current trying to pull you under.
I do a ton of winter fishing, and am wondering if the newer Boa Lacing system will hold up to winter fishing, and not freeze solid. I loved my original Korkers. I am thinking of trying gorilla glue or shoe goo on them to maybe get one more year out of them, but don't expect it to work. It was not fun fishing pocket water, with the sole of you wading boot flopping everywhere.
Does anyone have experience with this lacing system? Is it worth it? I am leaning towards the Buck skin boot, as it uses traditional laces, but wanted to hear from you all on your opinions on this system. I mainly am looking for advice on this system during winter fishing.
Thanks in advance for any helpful insight. I am pretty stuck on getting Korkers, as my last boots held up very well, for the harsh conditions I put them through.

Contact Cement works extremely well for wader boot sole repair. Cheap too!
I'm considering a change to Korkers. I'm in Simms Riversheds right now and although they are insanely comfortable, durable, and easy to take on and off the rubber soles are just killing me. I NEED felt!!
I'll vote for the contact cement. I've used a lot of different adhesives in wet environments and contact cement works best. Besides, these boots are experienced.......they know the ropes so to speak. I'd give them one more shot if I were you.
That being said.....if the sole comes loose from the heel again while you're working the heavy current....I think it would be best to keep that foot pointed UPSTREAM!
